2.3kg, happy with that.

 So, I picked this red cabbage this morning and it was so dense and heavy I had to chuck it on the scales. 2.3kg, happy with that.

Win lose or draw, I'm very pleased and excited with my efforts in the gardens at Glenvale Villas this year and would love for you to come and visit and share in my enjoyment of the gardens I've created for the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.

Cheers and hope to see you soon.

Moroccan Spiced Carrot Dip.

Got a few excess carrots?

This might be the way to go!

'Moroccan Spiced Carrot Dip.
Roasting carrots intensifies and caramelises their taste, which works beautifully with this collection of sweet, sharp and spicy flavourings. Serve this dip as a starter with warm pittas, or as part of a colourful mezze spread with a beetroot dip and a red pepper and cherry tomato dip.'

Toowoomba Camellia and Garden Show.

Looking forward to this, this weekend.

If you're at a loose end this weekend why not make the trip up, over or out and check out what is becoming a nice gardening show/event.

My Veggie Garden will be there but only as a visitor.

Hope to see you there.

Mini Me

My 'mini me' version of a Charles Dowding no dig veggie gardening.

Though Charles has been at this for several decades I've only just discovered him via YouTube. I'm guessing at about the same time he also discovered YouTube and started posting videos of his no dig gardening approach.

I've also managed to sneak in a small experiment here too. Using two different brands of compost. one being Hortico Compost from Hortico, no less.

The other is Osmocote Professional Compost & Soil Improver from Scotts.



Love to hear from you, leave a comment ot question below.
